The land where Struthers sits was once owned by John Struthers, who ironically named it Marbletown. When the marbles of emotional distress and mental anguish are rolling all over the floor of your life, you scramble to pick them all up before you slip on one and fall. Your mind is a jumbled mess, and your emotions are running wild.

Thoughts revolve through your mind You can’t latch onto a better line of reasoning. Your mind becomes more unclear and your emotions more distressing. Talk to a counselor in the Struthers area to clear your way to better mental health.

When I'm working with you, the focus is you--nothing else. You deserve to be truly heard and responded to with support, directness, and honesty. You may want assistance with seeing things in a new way and developing new ways to approach challenges. You may want to better understand what has held you back or why you have certain fears. I'm here to help you explore and understand these things and come away with practical solutions and useful tools. I practiced family and individual counseling in an urban setting for 7 years, and began supervising other therapists during that time as well. I've worked with parents to help them better support their children and teens, and worked with their kids individually as well. I believe I can help guide you through the challenge you're facing right now, and see you through to the other side where there's more hope that you might have thought. Look forward to meeting you...

Hello! Thank you for considering me to help you along in your journey. I am a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor/Supervisor in Ohio and have experience in many different areas of counseling and mental well-being. I attended Le Moyne College in Syracuse, New York for my bachelor's degree in psychology with a minor in sociology. While there, I had the opportunity to experience a lot of work in the field of psychology with work-study and community opportunities. I highly enjoyed serving my community then, and am excited to serve an even larger community here with my skills and experience. I attended The State University of New York at Oswego for my master's degree in mental health counseling. During this time, I was also able to serve a diverse community through internships. After receiving my master's degree in 2012, I worked in a private practice, where I gained even more experience and hours for licensure. I currently work for a community based mental health company in a local school in Ohio with elementary aged children. I have been working with adults again in private practice for the past 3 years and am enjoying it very much. My treatment approaches in therapy are eclectic and encompass a variety of techniques. I enjoy developing new skills and tools to use with my clients. My belief is that even if I have experienced the exact situation that you have experienced, we think and feel about those experiences in different ways. I strive to meet my clients where they are and work with them from there to develop the skills and coping methods that they need in order to feel the most well. Most of my clients describe me as laid back and very artistic. I view therapy as a science (that I have studied for over 15 years now) and an art form. I view the brain and our feelings as similar to a large closet. All of our life experiences get put into our closet-sometimes in a messy way and sometimes in a neat way. It is important how we keep our closets-many times we are so busy that we don't have time to process our feelings and things that happen to us, so we run to our closet and throw them in and slam the door as quickly as we can. After a while things start to spill out. My goal as your therapist is to help you arrange your closet in a way that is healthy for you-our experiences and feelings will always be there, but if we can fold them up neatly and put them away they are less likely to create chaos in our day to day lives. My job is to help you with the things that are more difficult to clean up by yourself. Just like folding those pesky fitted sheets can be a chore to do on your own, so can some of your life experiences and feelings. I am here to help you in this journey.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you and to the work that we are going to complete together. I began doing clinical work while living in Los Angeles. I pursued degrees in Psychology and Social Work while working as a therapist with children. Since moving to San Diego, I have enjoyed work as a therapist for all ages and as a school social worker, while also nurturing my own growing family. The work that I do has emerged from the love that I have for children, as well as for those who were children once. We all need to know that we have someone on our side that we can count on, someone who cares, and someone who allows us to feel heard. I cherish every opportunity to be that someone in the life of another. I will always tailor the work that we do to your specific needs and goals. I believe in a strengths-based, solution-focused model, and that you are the expert in your therapy and your progress. I also utilize research-based practices to help incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and Mindfulness practices into the work that we will engage in.

Each type of therapy can offer various benefits and address or treat different disorders.

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Struthers or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Struthers area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Struthers therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Struthers due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Struthers may not take health insurance, some in the state of Ohio may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With BetterHelp or clinicians throughout the state of Ohio you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Struthers, Ohio working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Struthers above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets. You'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in Struthers helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety or depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Struthers therapists specialize and have clinical experience in a wide range of mental health issues and modalities, helping clients to feel better and improve their lives every day. See below for examples.

Specialties on BetterHelp include:

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Struthers therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

A psychologist in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Struthers therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words.

With a lot of people in OH, providers may be booked out with clients. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 44471 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Struthers counselor?

Before seeing your therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice. A Struthers licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health professional has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Struthers, Ohio can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Struthers has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
